I was away for a business trip last week, and was therefore not able to be as vigilant on the baby animal front as I usually am.

WARNING: This post contains dangerous levels of cute.

Dhole Pups at Howletts Wild Animal Park in the UK

This litter of 12 (12!) Dhole pups was born at the end of March, and were recently available to be seen by the public. I've written about Dholes in my Wednesday Woof series.

Maned Wolf Pups at Denver Zoo in Colorado

May 1st saw the arrival of three Maned Wolf pups (two males and a female), born to parents Adrianna and Inigo.

I've written about Maned Wolves in my Wednesday Woof series.

Cheetah Cubs at Schonbrunn Zoo in Austria

Three Cheetah cubs were born on April 16, and are now old enough to be on exhibit with their mother.

I've written about Cheetahs in my Caturday series.

Snow Leopard Cubs at Akron Zoo in Ohio

Two cubs were born on April 14 to proud mama Shanti. They'll be off exhibit until they get big enough to be shown to the public.
